Set II starts with a face-paced Walkin' Blues, and Bobby is not the lead singer; it must be Boz Scaggs. The words are different from those Bobby sang in the later 80's. Brent rips the first solo on Hammond B3, then Jerry, then John Cippolina.
The preceding poster is correct, the 2nd song of the 2nd set is indeed Death Letter Blues. From wikipedia.com: "Lyrically, the song is about a man who learns of the death of the woman he loves through a letter delivered to him early in the morning." It is a wicked blues tune, and it starts with guitar solos by Jerry, then John, with the rest of the band playing quietly. Brent gets the next solo after the 1st stanza of lyrics. Then Cippolina rips another solo this time with more forceful rythmic backup from Jerry, Phil and Bob.
This Lovelight starts out sounding like a traditional 80's version with Bobby singing and Jerry noodling in front of quick drummers. Boz Scaggs joins in singing during the rest of the song. I'm not sure the transition to J.B.Goode really deserves an arrow. But it's a good version, played at about as fast a tempo as it could possibly be played, with everyone singing, keyboards prominent, and Cippolina and Jerry jamming furiously.
This recording is historically significant because it displays the contrast in guitar playing styles of Jerry Garcia and John Cippolina, and also because of the Walkin' Blues lyrics. On 4-8-67, the GD played with the QMS and played Walkin' Blues together. Bobby didn't sing on it then either, but Pigpen did!
